Xstrata Nickel makes a difference at two Sudbury Catholic Schools

February 4, 2009 - On behalf of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board and St. Anne and St. James Catholic Schools, we would like to thank Xstrata Nickel Company for their generous gift of $881.00 for the purchase of two full goalball kits. Their commitment to helping develop the sport of goalball in our schools is sincerely appreciated.

Goalball is a team sport designed for blind athletes but can be played by sighted athletes as well. It is an established Paralympic sport.

Participants compete in teams of three, and try to throw a ball that has bells embedded in it, into the opponents' goal. They must use the sound of the bell to judge the position and movement of the ball. Blindfolds allow partially sighted and sighted players to compete on an equal footing with blind players.

Thanks again to Xstrata Nickel Company for their generous support of our efforts to establish the sport of goalball in our schools.

Best Wishes,

Adriano Simonato
Teacher of the blind and low vision
Sudbury Catholic District School Board
